Bloggers Challenge Week 40 Spring Flowers


This card was created for my Friday Bloggers Challenge Group. I used the Spring Solitude Stamp Set, which is a SU hostess set. I stamped the images in basic grey. To fill in the white areas, I sponged some soft sky between the images. I then used an aquapainter and picking up ink from the lid of the ink pads, filled in the soft sky and gry areas of the flowers. The smaller flowers were filled with stickles glitter. To complete the card, I mounted the sentiment in the newest Hodgepodge Hardware, which can be found in the Occasions mini catalogue, I used a variety of punches to add interest and tied it with grey taffeta ribbon. Check out the link to my group members fabulous creations!
